The view of lower Manhattan from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Many others were there that afternoon photographing the absence of the World Trade Center's twin towers. The only reminder of its presence in this vista was a plume of smoke.

On Thursday, September 13, 2001, I visited a number of sites in New York City to be with other residents seeking company and comfort in their grief over the tremendous loss of life resulting from the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. I photographed a few of the countless items placed in memory of those lost and missing.

Someone had posted copies of this sign every few feet along the railing of the Promenade. Others had placed flowers, flags, sympathy cards near the signs.
